somebody in from the other party. which of course is what barack obama is doing. as i said, people against him in the hearing are likely not going to be the ones he is looking to as secretary as allies, to begin with. but generally this is a position that works across the aisle because of the position of the military. >> and he is a man without a home. because he is a republican in name, republicans don't think he is much of a republican. democrats, a lot of them don't -- they're not flthrilled with him because of the israeli comments. but he has to reach out to both sides of the aisle. >> he has work to do. let's talk about the economy and how it potentially could impact the president's political strength this year going into his second term. 157,000 jobs created in january. you take a look at the -- a lot of jobs created last year. still not moving. the economic growth as much as should -- but if you take a look at the jobs that have been created, you take a look at the dow jones. 14,000, it was under 7,000 when he attack office. how much of a political impact will it have on the preside
believe obama won because everyone they know voted against him. the point is, we have different perspectives on this. the reason i will oppose the legislation, chief johnston, is because i respect what you do as a law-enforcement officer. has your budget been cut? >> yes. >> will it be cut in the future? >> i am optimistic that it is not. >> because of the fiscal state of affairs we have, there will be less police officers, not more, over the next decade. response time will be more, not less. so, mr. kelly, i really do want to get guns out of the hands of the wrong people. i honest to god believe that if we arbitrarily say nobody in this country can own a 10-round magazine in the future, there could be a situation where a mother runs out of bullets because of something we do here. i cannot prevent every bad outcome, but i do know and believe in the bottom of my heart that i am not an unreasonable person by saying that in some circumstances the 15-round makes sense and in other situations the ar-15 makes sense. this is why we have these hearings. i really do appreciate the fact t
on his behalf. next friday, president obama is going to present that same citizens medal, against posthumously to the newtown teachers who died trying to protect their students at sandy hook elementary school. the announcement by the white house is jet another point of focus on gun violence. bringing the issue to the front of the news again. but that's been happening a lot these days. in fact, i think it is an important salient political point to note just how many days there have been since the mass shooting at sandy hook elementary school in which gun violence, gun policy, gun reform in one way or another has been a huge part of the day's news. it's not an accident that guns and gun violence have stayed in the news so much. it is very much by design that this is happening. the common wisdom, particularly the beltway common wisdom is that reform on the issue of guns is hard, if not impossible, to achieve. and that's in part because we'll get bored of even talking about this as an issue. it will fade away. what happened at sandy hook was terrible, but it will go down as just anoth
and in public comments asserted that it believes it is acting within the law when president obama or some other administration official directs that even an american citizen can be killed. they insist that neither the fifth amendment right to due process, nor the u.s. law against killing americans abroad, nor the u.s. law banning assassinations, nor just the law against murder, nor the laws of war broadly legally constrain the president from ordering the type of assault that killed american citizen and prominent al qaeda figure on war al awlaki in yemen in 2011. al awlaki's son was also killed a couple of weeks after his father was killed. between those two killing, charlie savage at "the new york times" reported on the existence of a legal memo that the government was relying on to claim that the attack was legal. that memo is what is being disclosed to select members of congress tonight. it follows by two days the scoop by nbc news investigative correspondent michael isikoff, who this week on this show disclosed a white paper that was based on the reasoning of that secret memo. tonight's disc
announced for the first time this to to support a path to citizenship for undocumented youth. the obama administration announced an expansion of sanctions against iran. on wednesday, the treasury department said it would pressure countries buying iran's oil to withhold direct payments and instead force iran to purchase their goods. the treasury widened a sanctions list to include iranian media groups involved in state censorship. following the announcement, iran's top leader, ayatollah alcmene, announced his rejection of rejecting the recent call for direct talks with joe biden. top iranian leaders, including president ahmadinejad, had made favorable statements about the offer earlier in the week, but iranian president said they would do nothing to resolve u.s.-iran differences. iran also has released what it says is surveillance footage extracted from u.s. surveillance drone captured inside its borders in 2011. opposition activists in syria are claiming new civilian casualties in the latest attacks on rebel strongholds around the capital damascus. the syrian observatory for human right
of state john kerry voted against it, and then senator obama gave speeches against it. vice-president biden voted against it. dick lugar voted against it. there were some other republicans. as to the iranian red line, persian gulf, some of the iranian questions you asked, i support the president's strong position of containment, as i said, and i will speak more specifically to a couple of the examples used from my book. but his position i think is right, and when you ask the question about red line, red line, i think the president has gone as far as he can go publicly on that, and he said clearly that in his words, he has israel's back. he said his policy is not to allow the iranians to get a nuclear weapon. what constitutes when the action would be taken? i think that is always something that should not be discussed publicly or debated publicly or out in the public domain. your quotations from my book, which you acknowledge as well, and i always say military options should be on the table, and i had said that consistently, as well as engaging with iran. i have always thought it is far smar
a secret base in saudi arabia, used to launch drones throughout the region. a tactic against terror which has grown 700% under the obama administration. whatever the benefit of the drone strikes, they have created enormous resentment among some here in the region, who view the strikes as another sign of american arrogance. everywhere i travel, from yemen -- >> i think americans, they have no right. they have no right to -- this is our fight. >> reporter: to pakistan. >> you can keep saying, yes, you are hitting the top leadership, but the byproduct of this is anger, anger among people, the innocent people who are getting killed. so, you are just creating more terrorists. >> reporter: now, the man who signs off on the kill list, from a basement office in the white house, john brennan, about to be questioned in front of the world. >> i suggest to you that these targeted strikes against al qaeda terrorists are indeed ethical and just. >> reporter: in pakistan alone, there have been more than 300 drone strikes in the last decade. killing thousands of al qaeda and taliban, but more than 300 ci

program and the obama administration's legal justification behind the use of such efforts against al qaeda suspects. a new 16-page memo copy of which was obtained by nbc news offers fresh insights into this controversial practice including the killing of american citizens overseas if they're believed to be senior operational leaders of al qaeda or an associated force. even if there's no intelligence indicating they're engaged in an active plot to attack the united states. >>> such a strike, of course, took place in yemen in september 2011 killing two operatives. both of them were american citizens who hadn't been indicted by the u.s. government or charged with any crimes. in the past, attorney general eric holder has spoken publicly about the administration's three main pcriteria for justifying a legal strike against a u.s. citizen overseas. they must pose an imminent threat of violent attack, capture is infeasible and the operation must be squint law of war principles. but this newly obtained memo elaborates further. i states u.s. officials may consider whether an attempted capture would

action to be taken against the bush administration, we're now obviously seeing some decisions the obama administration may argue differently. let me make clear, i support what the obama administration is doing here but it goes to show how difficult and messy, when the bush administration would make the point, those senior leaders would say it's difficult for perhaps some to understand what we're dealing with here when we talk about this level, all national security decisions are serious, we talk about this kind of threat we have to make at times very messy and sometimes uncomfortable and oftentimes questionable decisions. my only point is democrats need to now think back how they conducted themselves and questions they raised about bush administration tactics. i didn't raise those questions as aggressively as some of my friends did and important everybody step back and take a breather here, particularly democrats. if this was happening and his name was bush, i think there'd be a lot of criticism coming at this president. >> if george bush had done this, it would have been stopped. >> i

in unison against this gun lobby and the nonsensical insistence that president obama and anybody else who is concerned about taking care of illegal guns is against the second amendment. >> mark, to that point, the president said we don't have to agree on everything to agree to do something. but the nra position is that they don't agree to anything if it involves changes to the law. >> well, the amazing thing about the nra's position, which i think people are trying to understand right now, they don't represent gun owners in the positions they're taking against universal background checks which is something basically everybody agrees on. when you're at 90% public approval, that is pretty much unanimity behind the idea that if you are a felon, if you are a domestic violence perpetrator, if you are somebody who has a protective order out against them, a drug abuser, the seriously mentally ill, you should not be able to own a gun and you are currently not able to own one so this is merely enforcement of what is on the books. >> and yet if the nation cannot respond after 20 infants are murdere
